persuasion by his elder brother Jamal, Kamaal finally
agreed to take up a career in music. In 1995
he wrote and produced his first song "O Oh Jaane
Jaana" at Yojo Working Studios in Kensal Road,
London. The song released in 1996 becoming an instant
hit and achieved Platinum status within 2 weeks of its
release. The song also featured in the 1998 Bollywood
blockbuster "Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya"

album and the huge success of the movie has widely been
attributed by film pundits to the popularity of "O
Oh Jaane Jana". As a result of his successful debut
single, Kamaal was immediately signed by record label
HMV (India) in December 1997 on a 3 album deal for a
huge undisclosed sum.
